Netanyahu and Trump

Mazin Qumsiyeh


Benjamin Netanyahu just met Donald Trump and they are very friendly. Both are liars. War criminal Netanyahu’s prerequisites for peace are that:
1) Palestinians recognize the colonial state as a Jewish state – which is like South Africa saying the prerequisite for peace is to recognize it as a white state; and
2) the “Jewish state” retain control over the whole area – again, like the white South African government saying that they want to control the whole area.

Trump said that Palestinians are taught to hate and must stop hating Israelis. Netanyahu claimed that just like Chinese come from China, Jews come from Judea and so are not colonizers!

He also claims Iran writes on their missiles in Hebrew that Israel must be destroyed!

These two lies – and many more – are typical of congenital liars like Netanyahu.

Sorry, but “The Jews” (nor “The Christian” or “The Muslims”) do NOT come from our country (Palestine is its geographic name, for those who do not know). The myth that they do is a myth of “Jewish biology” that is actually based on Nazi racist myths, themselves stoked by Zionist myths.

A minority of people from those religions actually originate from Palestine – less than 3% of each adherent of any of these religions come from here, including Netanyahu himself.

Who is Netanyahu? Benyamin Mileikowsky (aka Netanyahu) was born to Benzion Mileikowsky (later changed names to Netanyahu), a polish immigrant. His American father became secretary to terrorist leader Vladimir Yevgenyevich Zhabotinsky (aka Zeev Jabotinsky), founder of “revisionist” Zionism, and supported groups like the Irgun terrorist organization during the mandate in Palestine.

His son continues to idolize these early Jewish terrorists. Both Benjamin and his brother served in units of the Israeli forces responsible for assassinations on foreign lands, in violation of international law, and also committed war crimes.

Benjamin Miliekowsky (Netanyahu) is known both among Israelis and globally as a consummate liar who refused to accept the Oslo accords even though they were partial to Israel, and has gotten rich off his political activities. Here is a video of him thinking the camera was off explaining his true contributions during his first stint as Israeli prime minister in the 1990s. See also this Israeli report.

This is after all the same terrorist who gave a speech to dozens of Likud Party members in Eilat in which he admitted this is his strategy. According to the Israeli newspaper Haaretz (15 July 2001), while giving his audience a bit of advice on how to deal with foreign interviewers, Netanyahu said:

“Always, irrespective of whether you’re right or not, you must always present your side as right.”

In 2011 the French president, Nicolas Sarkozy, described Netanyahu as a liar in a private exchange with US President Barack Obama at the G20 summit, which was inadvertently broadcast to journalists.

“I cannot stand him. He’s a liar,” Sarkozy told Obama. The US president Obama responded by saying: “You’re fed up with him? I have to deal with him every day.”

So did Netanuahu vote for Trump? He, like the majority of Israelis, has a foreign passport. I do not know and we do not care. They have been good friends for decades, as they both say.

There is a temptation out there to ignore Netanyahu (who is much smarter than Trump) and focus on Trump. Some well-intentioned people are joining the “pile on Russia” crowd that is smelling blood after Flynn’s resignation as US National security chief, and will ignore the Israeli interference in US elections.

Yes Flynn and Bannon and Trump and their “Fox” talk show mentors are brain-washed racist anti-Muslim anti-logic and “alternative fact” nuts – but who created them? The democratic establishment, the many democratic senators and congressmen and many liberals in the media who back them, and who still are not being honest with us, or themselves.

For example they are not telling us about how the foreign lobby for Zionists has shaped US media, including Zionist Murdoch’s Fox news.

They are ignoring how the Zionist lobby has for decades shaped selection of US officials, whether Congress, the president or his cabinet. (Read Findley’s book “They Dare to Speak Out”).

They shaped foreign policy and aid for decades in favor of Israel, and most times against US interests.

Israel is no friend of the US and it intentionally attacked a US ship in International waters killing many US sailors.

There are numerous credible reports of Israeli interference in US elections and blatant Israeli hijacking of US democracy the the ‘dump on the Russians’ crew are completely ignoring.

They, too, should be under the spotlight.

We must continue to speak truth to power, stay informed, and most of all organize and build an alternative to the narrative of Zionist republicans or Zionist democrats.

We must reclaim our humanity!

Stay human.

Speaking truth in an era of universal deceit is a revolutionary act.
